BWW Review: TIME STANDS STILL is Harsh and Tender Contemplation on War and RelationshipsBWW Review: TIME STANDS STILL is Harsh and Tender Contemplation on War and Relationships
by Tanya Seale - Mar 29, 2019

Romantic partners for 8 ˝ years, photojournalist Sarah (Wendy Renee Greenwood) and war correspondent James (Ben Nordstrom), return home, Sarah's face bandaged, her arm in a sling, and her leg bound with a brace as she struggles to maneuver on crutches. We don't know exactly what has happened just yet, but we know it's bad, as the play opens with poignant silences, emerging compromises, and a shared consideration for anguish. We soon learn that the couple has covered the horrors of combat, famines, and genocides; that they have nearly died several times, and that as Sarah begins recovering from the physical wounds from a roadside bomb, James has already been home and is on meds recovering from his emotional ones. The question associated with a recovery of this magnitude is, "What happens next?" And what happens after that and after that? (more...)
